Money Follows the Person
A federal program to assist people with disabilities in transitioning out of institutional care, such as nursing homes, and back into community living in their own home, with family members or in a small group home. If you or a loved one is living in an institution, and would prefer living at home, please contact Walton Options and ask to speak with an Options Counselor to determine if you qualify to receive funding to transition utilizing this program. For people who do not qualify for MFP funding, Walton Options will still work diligently to try to locate you into your preferred type of living situation to the greatest extent possible.
If you are interested in Nursing Home Transitions Assistance, please contact Walton Options on 706-724-6262 to speak with an Information and Referral Specialist. Or complete the Self-Referral Form online by clicking here.
